As the Ministry of Culture will struggle with booking speculators

First, will sell tickets only to the organization of culture, and secondly, speculators will be threatened by considerable penalties. Whether these measures will help to solve a problem? Photo: Valery Possible penalties for speculation in tickets in theaters, cinema and on concerts will make Sharifulin/TASS from 100 thousand rubles to one million. The Ministry of Culture has drafted two bills which are already submitted for consideration of deputies of the State Duma. The first document assumes that only the organizations of culture and structures authorized by them will be engaged in sale of tickets. They will establish also a return order. If the action is postponed or cancelled by the organizer, have to return to the viewer the cost of the ticket in full. The second bill suggests to make responsible speculators. So, for sale of the ticket at the price exceeding specified on it citizens are threatened by a penalty at the rate from 100 thousand to 300 thousand rubles. Individual entrepreneurs and officials will pay up to half a million, and legal persons can give up to one million rubles. These laws have ripened long ago, the CEO of a national theatrical award and the Golden Mask festival, the director of the State theater of the nations Maria Revyakina:mariya Revyakina the CEO of a national theatrical award and the Golden Mask festival, the director of the State theater of the nations "On it very strongly says dealers profit. And so at us an opportunity, first, won't accept from them tickets because they sometimes come a day before the beginning of the performance and try to hand over them, that is the theater sustains losses. Sometimes it is just deception of people to whom resell tickets on double, and sometimes and the threefold price. Penalties will help too. It is a lot of websites which look as the websites of the Bolshoi Theatre, Theatre of the nations, and people think that it is the real website. We still suffer reputational risks". As writes TASS with reference to data of Ministry of Culture, the sum of payments from cash desk in the Moscow theater for the returned tickets can exceed 3 million rubles only for one theatrical season. The problem proceeds from the booking legislation: the viewer can return the ticket at any time and receive money, and for speculators it is very favorable conditions, the head of marketing of the Center of Meyerhold Oleg Sokolov:oleg Sokolov the head of marketing of the Center of Meyerhold "Considers if the booking legislation was similar to the booking legislation, for example, in Germany where the bought theater ticket can't be returned, then and with speculators there would be another story here. If they burned through on sale of tickets, then the theater wouldn't suffer from it, at least financially any more. I don't know as far as these penalties will help because these speculators not legal entities. At what level to catch them? To stand with police near theater or to catch the websites which appear every day on hundred pieces?" Most of all theaters with star structures suffer from dealers. So, the Bolshoi Theatre sells the first four weeks tickets according to the passport, and it is possible to buy them face value, however then all the same there comes the turn to a spa
